IRC Support interrupted

It's sad, Freenode ( our IRC channel provider ) does no longer accept Mibbit webchat to connect their server.
A direct result of that is that the actual IRC Support tab does no longer let you connect to our irc channel.
In the mainwhile you can connect using their own webchat locate at this address :
Use your mks site login and connect to the 'monkeystudio' channel.

I will update the IRC Support tab shortly.

The new MkS version that was scheduled is taking time to polishing, for this reason it's a little delayed.
A new package is available for (x)ubuntu Jaunty, you can find it on the wiki LinuxPackages page.
It's to be noted that all fix regarding MkS and Qt 4.5.x are not available in this package, it's just the same intrepid package rebuilt for jaunty, so some glitches can appear.

MkS & Qt 4.5.x on recents Linux distributions


Some of you may already see the problem but for the others here is the current problem :
Due to important changes in the Qt 4.5.x library & QScintilla, MkS will most likely not works well ( ui bugs and unusable embed Designer ).
We already fixed all all major problem in the svn v2/branches/dev.
I have some small bugs to fixe and we will release a new version approximatively the next week.
The actual debian package ( and probably all others ) are no longer compatible.
You have 2 way of getting that fixed :

  • 1/ Get the svn copy from path : v2/branches/dev, patch the config.pri fi
